I have two forms that are used in a database. One is long and skinny (F1), the other is a nice rectangle (F2). In the form properties pane, I set the forms for both the max and min sizes to the same size. I have also turned off both horizontal and vertical scrolling for the forms.
If I click a button on F1, it opens F2 it is zoomed to the desired size with no scroll bars, however, a little arrow exists at the bottom right of the screen that will let it be resized to the dimensions of F1 even though a minimum size is set. Unfortunately, it won’t resize back to the original size. If I click the button to go back to F1, the window dimensions are correct, however, all objects are shifted to the left and now it has a little arrow on the bottom right corner that will let me resize it to the dimensions of F2 which is larger. I also can’t reduce it back down again.
So if nobody notices the arrow at the bottom of the forms, everything is great. From experience, I know the users will find that arrow, get frustrated and quit, which will then save the window positions. I know I can set the form again when it is reopened but, how do I ensure that the little guy doesn’t show up in the first place?
